Documentation: [thispatcher] reference


    Jul 10 2008 | 8:08 am
    Another comment about the documentation in Max5: there are no informations about [thispatcher] messages like clean, write, patcher, dispose, loadbang, etc. (not speaking about topmost - thanks John!). The .maxhelp is much moe complete than its reference file!
    Interestingly, the contectual menu assistance shows, like in Max4, only 3 available messages: anything, end and savewindow. Which are of course the only one described in the reference.

      Those are actually messages to the >>patcher<< inside of the bpatcher object. Check out the patcher refpage for more info.

      Thanks Jeremy, but those are messages I can see in thispatcher.maxhelp, and I use them with [thispatcher] since ages. I can't see anything about dispose, dirty, etc. in [patcher]'s ref neither. If you search for dispose in Max5's documentation, it will indeed return the [thispatcher] help file, but you won't find anything about dispose until you open the .xml source to discover dispose in a tag.
      What about my recent previous message about #0 in the documentation? Max5's documentation system seems so strange to me...
